Brave Horse Tavern checks off all of our night-out-with-friends boxes: reservations accepted, great food and drinks, and games on the premises (and there’s even a private dining room and bar in the back that you can reserve for free). If you can’t decide between getting friendly with some brick oven pretzels and smoked peanut butter-bacon dip, playing hand shuffleboard, eating spicy tater tots until you need to unbutton your jeans, and sucking down enough fancy boozy jello shots to be conned by the red quinoa veggie burger (yep, it’s actually that good), then you’re doing it right.
